MEDIA REVIEWS

I read this when I was about sixteen and remember its menace. It is about the potential toxicity in female friendships, which is a contentious issue. Atwood is never pigeonholed, she's wry and has a poet's eye - Jessie Burton, author of The Miniaturist

Not since Graham Greene or William Golding has a novelist captured so forcefully the relationship between school bully and victim...Atwood's power games are played, exquisitely, by little girls - LISTENER

Irrestistible...This book is about life for all of us. She is one of our finest novelists. Read it - THE TIMES

Atwood's taut and exquisite use of language makes all her books irresistable... - THE WEEK

“My all-time favourite book!”

This book is about Elaine, a painter, whose return to Toronto unearths buried childhood memories. It is about the space-time continuum and the strange things time and distance do to us when we aren't looking. It... More
